MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A Seattle man has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for sending methamphetamine from Washington to Missoula.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1lK7iq9) that 36-year-old Albert Pedro Jaquez was sentenced on Friday in U.S. District Court after pleading guilty to felony conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. His accomplice was sentenced to five years for the same charge.

According to court documents, Jaquez would supply meth in Seattle that his accomplice would then take across state lines.

At his sentencing, Jaquez apologized for his actions and blamed his drug dealing on the fact that he couldn’t get a job after being released from prison after a 2000 murder conviction.
